The Set-Up

SATURDAY, AUGUST 4 11:30 AM; MONDAY, AUGUST 6 7 PM; THURSDAY, AUGUST 9 9 PM. “One for the Ten Best lists. This is the boxing movie to lick all others, with Ryan impeccable as the ageing fighter gearing up for a bout he's expected to lose; Audrey Totter leaving him because she can't stand the mental and physical battering of the fight business, wandering the streets amid snatches of ringside radio commentary; and an invading sense of desolation the result. Great blue moments in black-and-white from a director whose early work is still outstanding: the film burns with the humanity that Raging Bull never quite achieves, an expression of masochism mixed with futile pride that is the essence of boxing as a movie myth.” (TimeOut) 1949 Robert Wise 1.33:1 B&W 35mm 73 min.
